Your Subconscious Mind is your GPS to Success (Article explains all)

.
I became an overnight success after 30 years. It took me 30 years to achieve the success I wanted because I was an idiot.....  You see, I thought it was my conscious mind that determined if I would succeed or fail. 

No one ever taught me that my conscious mind allowed me to set the direction I wanted to go but it would be my subconscious mind that would make sure I got there.  

No one ever explained to me that the conscious mind was the captain of my ship and the subconscious mind was my GPS that would guide me to my destination. 

As a result of not knowing about the functions of the conscious and subconscious mind, instead of relying on my GPS to guide me to the success I wanted, I was always guessing.  'Is it this way or that.'  'Is this the right way or the wrong way.' This caused me to go in circles for years never making any real progress at all.  In fact, if you ever watched the movie  'Groundhog Day' starring Bill Murray, my life was almost exactly like that for ten years. Doing the same thing day in and day out (or a variation of the same thing) and expecting a different result, I was not only an idiot, I was infected with the family insanity virus which believed that if you did the same thing over and over again, eventually it would produce a different result.

Conscious mind DIRECTS, Subconscious DELIVERS


“You affect your subconscious mind by verbal repetition.” W. Clement Stone

“We must realize that the subconscious mind is the law of action and always expresses what the conscious mind has impressed on it. What we regularly entertain in our mind creates a conception of self. What we conceive ourselves to be, we become.” Grace Speare

“Only one thing registers on the subconscious mind: repetitive application - practice. What you practice is what you manifest.” Fay Weldon

“It is psychological law that whatever we desire to accomplish we must impress upon the subjective or subconscious mind.” Orison Swett Marden

“The person with a fixed goal, a clear picture of his desire, or an ideal always before him, causes it, through repetition, to be buried deeply in his subconscious mind and is thus enabled, thanks to its generative and sustaining power, to realize his goal in a minimum of time and with a minimum of physical effort. Just pursue the thought unceasingly. Step by step you will achieve realization, for all your faculties and powers become directed to that end.” Claude M. Bristol

“The possibilities of creative effort connected with the subconscious mind are stupendous and imponderable. They inspire one with awe.” Napoleon Hill

“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.” Earl Nightingale

“Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives.” Robert Collier

“It is only through your conscious mind that you can reach the subconscious. Your conscious mind is the porter at the door, the watchman at the gate. It is to the conscious mind that the subconscious looks for all its impressions.” Robert Collier


If you are not the master of your conscious thoughts, you will end up becoming the VICTIM of your subconscious thoughts  - Frederick Zappone

Old Fred Was Dying (Funny)


Ol' Fred had been a faithful Christian and was in the hospital, near death. The family called their preacher to stand with them.

As the preacher stood next to the bed, Ol' Fred's condition appeared to deteriorate and he motioned frantically for something to write on.

The pastor lovingly handed him a pen and a piece of paper, and Ol' Fred used his last bit of energy to scribble a note, then suddenly died.

The preacher thought it best not to look at the note at that time, so he placed it in his jacket pocket. At the funeral, as he finished the service, he realized that he was wearing the same jacket that he was wearing when Ol' Fred died. 


He said, "You know, Ol' Fred handed me a note just before he died. I haven't looked at it, but knowing Fred, I'm sure there's a word of inspiration there for us all." He opened the note, and read, "Please step to your left ------ you're standing on my oxygen tube!"

Dog for Sale (This is truly funny)




Dog For Sale. Free to good home. Excellent guard dog. Owner cannot afford to feed Jethro anymore as there are no more drug pushers, murderers, thieves, or molesters left in the neighbourhood for him to eat. Most of them knew Jethro only by his Chinese street name, Ho Lee Schitt.

Thanks Gin for sending this my way
.

Are you a Gratitude Practitioner? If you are, this message is for you.

.
Most people know expressing gratitude is important if they want to attract more good things into our lives to be grateful for.... What most people are unaware of is the one very important thing 95% of the people are the planet are not grateful for. It is the 'missing piece' of the gratitude formula. If you are not grateful for this one very important thing (the missing piece), the lack of gratitude in this area of your life will neutralizes and take the power out of everything else they are grateful for... 

Without being grateful for this one important thing (the missing piece) you might as well not be grateful for anything because the attitude of gratitude will not produce any good results for you.  

In Message #15 of my daily gratitude messages, I explain what this one important thing is, the missing piece.  I dare say most people will be shocked when they discover what this very important thing is and once discovering the 'missing piece' they will say 'of course, it is so obvious, why didn't I think of it.... 

For those of you who are currently subscribed to my daily gratitude messages look for the answer to the 'missing piece' in message 15 of your daily gratitude messages. For those of you who are not subscribers to my free daily gratitude messages, and would like to be, fill in the form below 

The MIRACLE Gratitude Produced in my Life.

.

For those of you who are subscribers to my daily messages of gratitude, be on the lookout for Message 15. It contains one of the most important pieces of information, if not the most information piece of information about gratitude ever discovered by man.

It is the missing piece to the Gratitude Practice that I have never, ever seen written about before. In fact, I didn't even know there was a 'missing piece' to the Gratitude Practice until, for reasons unexplained at the time, I plunged into the darkest space I have ever been in, in my entire life. 



The space was so bleak and dark and so full of hopelessness and despair that I began praying for God to take me home... In spite of being in the darkest place I had ever been in, in my life, I expressed gratitude for being ungrateful that I was in that 'dark space'. I did that because I knew gratitude had the power to make what goes wrong with my life, turn out right.  Shortly after expressing gratitude for being ungrateful, like a THUNDERBOLT, out of the blue. IT HIT ME why I was in the dark space....

I was in the dark space to make an important discovery about gratitude that would change the lives of gratitude practitioners everywhere. And once I discovered the missing piece to the Gratitude Practice, like a cork trapped at the bottom of the ocean and suddenly set free to rise to the surface, I was suddenly set free from the darkness and was shot skyward into the LIGHT....and what I brilliant light it was, more brilliant than ever before with the guarantee that as long as I don't forget to be grateful for the 'missing piece' I shall never see darkness again... The Missing Piece is revealed to you in message 15, look for it...

Excerpts  from the First Twelve Gratitude Messages

Message #1 - Gratitude has a FEEL to it and for
gratitude to works it's magic in your life, you must feel it.

Message #2 Being grateful for problems allows the universe
to turn something unpleasant in our life into something
good for us.. (Real life example)

Message #3 - "Gratitude also opens your eyes to the limitless
potential of the universe, while dissatisfaction closes your eyes to it." 

Message #4 - Gratitude will 'grow' abundance for you in all areas
of your life. Gratitude is the fertilizer that yields crops of abundance,
tangible and intangible including love, money and better health.

Message #5 - Gratitude is all about having us focus our attention
on the 'here and now' where our 'authentic power' lives.

Message #6 -  Appreciation for what you have, attracts. Dissatisfaction,
on the other hand, pushes good things away from you.

Message #7 -  Appreciate what you "have", before time
teaches you to appreciate what you "had".

Message #8 -  Your 'gratitude practice' begins where you are with what
you have.... And sometimes the starting place, for some folks,
is being grateful for what they had...

Message #9 -  The Voice said: "Until you learn to be grateful for
things you have, you will not receive the things you want."

Message #10 -  Gratitude for Negative Feelings makes them go POOF.  Let me explain

Message #11 -  Being grateful for all things, especially the things and people I did not like
attracted good things to me out of thin air from sources unexpected, unexpectedly.

Message #12 - Once gratitude become an automatic habit of thought for you, 

you will attract into your life, with effortless ease, more good things to be grateful for.

You Become What You Declare Yourself To Be.....

.
I don't know about you but ' I know' 
I AM MAGNIFICENT, POWERFUL AND LOVABLE TO THE CORE AND
I AM WORTHY AND DESERVING OF EVERY GOOD THING I WANT..
I didn't always know that about myself but I did believe it. What changed it from a belief to an absolute certainty for me is that I declared those words to be true for myself ten years ago. As a result, over time, I have become the person I declared myself to be.. If you use the above I AM statement, on a consistent basis, that I used for myself, you will become what you declare yourself to be. 
Say it long enough and often enough and
your words become LAW in the universe.
Gratitude Makes Negative Feelings go POOF
.
.

Gratitude is Powerful, POWERFUL Stuff

.
YES, it is true. Gratitude for Negative Feelings makes them Go POOF. 
Message #10 in my series of daily gratitude messages explains in detail how this is possible. If you haven't yet signed up for my free gratitude messages, fill in the form below.
For some of you, what I just shared with you about the power of gratitude to make negative feelings go POOF will sound too good to be true to you. To you I say this, prove me wrong.
I say the following to you with all the humility I can muster, if people knew what I knew about the relationship between gratitude and making negative emotions and feelings go POOF, no one would ever be taking drugs or pills to sedate and medicate their feelings. - Frederick Zappone

If you suffer from depression, you need to read the LIES about Depression.

.
Disclaimer: The information contained in this blog post is for educational purposes only. This message is posted with the understanding that the author is not engaged in rendering medical advice or mental health therapy of any kind. If you have a medical condition that requires immediate attention, please contact your doctor or your local healthcare practitioner. If you decide to apply any of the information in this message to your own life, which is your constitutional right to do so, the author is not responsible for the consequences of your actions.
.

Whether you realize it or not, you have been told many LIES about depression by well meaning but misguided people. In order for depression to disappear from your life, without pills, drugs or therapy, you have to learn what those lies are and replace them with the truth.  This is a start for you. 

To feel depressed from time to time is normal.  To remain depressed is abnormal. The thing that causes people to remain depressed is they resist and fight their depressed feelings rather than allowing their depressed feelings to harmlessly pass out of their body the way a baby passes gas.


Contrary to what the experts will tell you, depression is not caused by a chemical imbalance. A chemical imbalance is a result of the thoughts you are thinking that are causing you to feel depressed in the first place. Science has proven our thoughts have a profound, even lethal effect, on our body chemistry.  Negative thoughts depress the body chemistry while positive thoughts strengthen the body chemistry.

You feel what you feel for a reason, including feeling depressed. And the reason you feel what you feel is ultimately always for your good. Once you discover what that reason is, the troublesome feelings of depression will disappear from your life with no effort at all.

That all being said, when you are grateful for feeling depressed, rather than resisting those feelings, your depressed feelings will literally go POOF. My daily gratitude messages explain how being grateful for your feelings of depression allow your depressed feelings to surface and evaporate into thin air...

Taking pills to medicate and sedate your depressed feelings does not heals them and does not allow you to hear the messages of guidance and advice your depressed feelings are sending your way.

In life we are either fully expressing ourselves or depressing ourselves. Depressed people have lost their voice to fully express themselves, that's why they are depressed. 

What gives depression power over you is your fear of it. Your fear of your depression is a result of errors in your thinking. Once you understand what those errors in thinking are, you will eliminate your fear of depression and once that happens, eliminating depressed feelings from your life will be no trouble at all. 

If depression is an issue for you and you want to learn how to use 'gratitude' to make abnormal depression disappear from your life, sign up for my free daily gratitude messages today.

Today's 'Prosperity' DARE...

.  

To live a more prosperous life, window shop prosperity first. Just looking at expensive rings, houses, cars, dresses, purses, shoes, watches will attract more prosperity to you. The DARE IS, are you willing to go into stores and car dealerships, etc. and look at the most expensive things you see that you would buy if you had the cash today?... To repeat, just looking at prosperous things will attract more prosperity to you. 

If you are unwilling to window shop prosperous things that tells me that your belief in you living a prosperous life is practically ZERO for you. If you want to do some prosperous 'window shopping' but feel uncomfortable about the idea of doing it, do it anyway. 
  

The very things that make you feel uncomfortable about doing some 'prosperity window shopping' are the very things that are stopping you from living the prosperous life that you richly deserve.  Isn't it about time you discovered what stopping you from living the prosperous life that is your spiritual destiny to live?  I do. Oh, and by the way, being grateful for what you have, will make you more prosperous too.


Would you, could you, choose a MAGICAL life for yourself?


What you have today is a result of your thoughts and choices of yesterday. What you will have tomorrow will be a result of your thoughts and choices of today. It is not the big choices that trip us up, it is the little ones. It is the moment by moment choices that make the biggest differences in our lives.

I am now going to ask you to make the highest risk choice of your life.  No, it is not high risk because it cost a ton of money because it is free.  And no, it is not high risk because it has some danger to it, there is no danger to it at all..  It is high risk because I am going to ask you to believe in yourself, without doubt, that you are worthy of every good thing you want out of life.


The reason the choice is high risk is because 95% of the people I know don't believe they are worthy of every good thing life has to offer them.. They don't believe in themselves because secretly they believe they are not good enough, smart enough, worthy enough or deserving enough.  To believe in yourself, without doubt, is high risk because you are going against the 95% of the people who are full of doubt and have very little chance of ever creating a magical life for themselves

The truth is you are worthy and deserving of all the good things life has to offer you. And once you believe that you are worthy,  you will also believe there is an easy way to attract, acquire and achieve anything you want out of your life.  There is an easy way. The easy way is called being 'grateful' for what you have because when you are grateful for what you have, you attract more good things into your life to be grateful for. This, often times, happens in ways that you cannot logically explain to people.

How do I know this to be true?  Because the practice of gratitude has allowed me to become healthier, richer and wiser in heart, mind and soul than I ever imagined possible...and I want the same things for you. Why?  Because the more I am able to show you how to use the attitude of gratitude' to make all of your dreams come true, the more you will tell other people about the work I do.  And as a result, I will grow richer in all ways because of my ability to make other people rich too.


YOUR THOUGHTS + YOUR CHOICES + YOUR ACTIONS  = YOUR CONSEQUENCES


As I said in the beginning, it is your thoughts + your choices that equal the circumstances of your life. And by being grateful for what you have you will naturally attract more good things into your life to be grateful for. My daily gratitude messages will give you all the wisdom and insights you need so you will understand both the practical and mystical powers that come with developing the attitude of gratitude habit.  To begin receiving your daily gratitude messages today, fill in the form below.

I am the luckiest man ALIVE....

.
I am the luckiest the man ALIVE because I am so very grateful for what I do have which has stopped me from  moaning, bitching and complaining about all the things I do not have,,,, Gratitude feelings make me feel so alive and so very, very good on the inside. This quite a different experience than when I was focused on what I didn't have and was moaning and complaining about it all the time. 

Focusing on what I didn't have made me feel depressed, even physically sick at times.. I am so glad that part of my life is over and done with because all complaining ever did for me was make me feel worse while gratitude, in all situations, makes me feel great to be alive.. 

The best part is, the more I am grateful for what I do have, the more good things I attract into my life to be grateful for in ways that I cannot logically explain.



A Real Life Lesson About GRATITUDE.....

.

The letter contains the lesson I learned about gratitude today

Dear Lorena,

I wanted to send you a personal letter of thanks and let you know how much I appreciate

you signing up for my free gratitude messages.

I must admit I was disappointed in the number of people who signed up for my free gratitude

messages so far.  I thought it would be hundreds by now but so far you are one of 8 people who signed
up which makes my feelings of gratitude towards you even more meaningful to me. Let me explain.

In life, it is natural to be disappointed from time to time. At the moment of being disappointed we

have a choice to make. Do we stay disappointed?  Do we get angry about being disappointed?
Do we become bitter and blame God or someone outside ourselves for being disappointed? 

OR.....


Do we use our disappointment as an opportunity to find gratitude in a disappointing situation.


In my case, I am using my disappointment in the number of people who signed up for my gratitude

messages as a reason to be extremely grateful for the 8 people who did sign up.  You see, at this
point, I can continue to feel disappointed or I can focus on the joy I felt when I saw that you
signed up for my gratitude messages.

I choose to focus on the joy I felt when you signed up.


When it comes to gratitude....it's all about our focus.... We can focus on
what we expected to
happen that didn't happen which will make us feel ungrateful
or we can focus on what we wanted
that did happen which makes us feel grateful.  In this case,  I am grateful that you are one of the 8
people who did sign up for my gratitude messages. And when I remember the feelings of gratitude
I felt when I saw that you you signed up, I feel the glorious feelings only a grateful
heart can feel, all over again, and I feel good,,,,

Warmly,


Frederick

GRATITUDE MAKES THINGS GONE WRONG IN LIFE, GO RIGHT!

Being grateful for things gone wrong makes me feel better immediately because I understand the almost mystical powers of being a gratitude practitioner.  Being sincerely grateful for unpleasant things always turns them into good things for me.  

When I am grateful for the things that disappoint or hurt me, I am demonstrating my faith and trust in the 'organizing intelligence of the universe' (that many people call God) to turn what disappoints or hurts me into something good for me and it ALWAYS does.


Gratitude for all the things gone wrong in my life has made me happier, healthier and more prosperous in my heart, mind and soul than I could ever possibly imagine. And now I would like to share with you all that I know about the magical power of gratitude by sending you my free daily messages. These messages are filled with insights on how to use gratitude to attract more good things into your life to be grateful for. I also explain how to use gratitude to turn 'hurts and disappointments' into good things for you.

My daily messages are not only free to you, they are unconditionally free which means I will never try to sell you a thing.  I say that because, first, I am a lousy salesman and secondly my offline income is enough. Any extra income I receive that comes my way from donations on the internet is icing on the cake..

Gratitude in Action - The Trevor Streak Story

.
Trevor Streak didn't know me from the man in the moon. 

He didn't want anything from me. He didn't ask me for anything. He simply liked what I was tweeting and started retweeting my tweets.  Out of appreciation and gratitude for him doing that, my heart opened wide to him.  That what gratitude does, it opens our hearts wide and creates possibilities and opportunities for ourselves and others we never dreamed existed.

As a result of the gratitude I feel toward Trevor Streak,  I have sent him a small donation in support of the work he is doing in regards to his saving his wife, Victoria.  To read her story, click here

Trevor and Victoria

The donation I made to Trevor wasn't logical or something I thought through.  It was something I felt inspired to do because of the gratitude I felt in my heart toward Trevor. And when I feel inspired to do something, I always do it. Inspired action, on my part, has always resulted in good things coming back to me, multiplied, from sources unexpected, unexpectedly.

It Takes Courage to be Grateful. Let me explain:

.

The Gratitude Practice is definitely not for WIMPS or COWARDS.   The reason I say that is because the first thing that happens the moment you sincerely begin the gratitude practice is that you will discover all the areas of your life where you are truly an ungrateful son of a bitch.   This discovery will shock you, embarrassed you, even make you feel ashamed.  That's why I said the gratitude practice is not for wimps and cowards.



THE GOOD 'GRATITUDE' NEWS


The good news is the moment you become aware of the areas of your life where you are not grateful, the lack of gratitude in those areas of your life begins to dissolve naturally.. In place of ungrateful feelings, you will experience such powerful feelings of gratitude that your life will immediately shift from one where your mind is filled with worry, stressful and anxious thoughts to a mind that is filled with thoughts of love, appreciation, power, peace and strength. 

This shift in thinking happens automatically once you get into the 'attitude of gratitude' habit. And the things you have been struggling to bring into your life such as love, more money, better health will start showing up in your life with no effort at all. Can you imagine that, can you imagine a worry free life?  

Can you imagine a life free of anxiety, depression, and fear?  The gratitude practice will give you that life....

Gratitude Turns Problems into GOOOOOD Stuff. Here's an Example


Was at a restaurant with my son and his family today. I was grateful for the very, very slow service given to us. Hadn't seen my son and his family for about a year and the slow service allowed me to spend more time with them.  Being grateful for the slow service resulted in a 20% discount off of my $40.00 lunch bill. 

This happened without me complaining or asking the waitress to adjust the bill. In addition, the manager, unexpectedly, gave me a card worth $20.00 off my next visit. Again without asking or complaining.

Being grateful for problems, from my point of view, allows the universe to turn something unpleasant in our life into something good for us...That's why I am grateful for problems when they shows up in my life. BTW, ever notice when you bitch and moan about a problem, the problem either gets worse or you end up with more problems.. Gratitude for the negatives turns them into positives.

Your Enemies Are Not My Enemies

.
UNIVERSAL PEACE PLEDGE  (By Frederick Zappone

Everything in life is created twice, first mentally, then physically. To have an enemy in my physical world I have to make him an enemy in my thoughts. I do not do choose to do that. 

I do not choose to make enemies out of individuals or countries. I also do choose to inherit the enemies of my ancestors for their enemies are not my enemies.  The reason I choose not to inherit my ancestor's enemies is because I have no desire to carry on a tradition that results in bloodshed and violence. 

I do not choose to carry on any tradition of my ancestors that wounds or harms another human being in any way. My tradition is a tradition of peace.  I make this pledge of peace first to myself and then to others

 -----------------------------------------------------
In the comment section, in your own words, confirm you have taken the peace pledge then
feel free to make copies of the 'Universal Peace Pledge' and pass it on to others.

Let it Go. Yes you can, I know you can Let It Go.

.
Let it go, let that thought go that is annoying you. Let it go, let that person go who is irritating you. Let it go, let that feeling go that is making you feel depressed and discouraged. Let it go...and it will.... And while you are waiting for it to leave, switch gears, and go play...

Let Life AMAZE You, I do!...

2 cents made him a Millionaire... ( A Gratitude Story)

.
He found 2 cents last year and was grateful. He was grateful  because he knew that, although, 2 cents wasn't much, it was much better than nothing at all.  He also knew that by being grateful for the 2 cents, he would attract more money to be grateful for. The next day he found a quarter. Again, not much money but better than nothing at all so he expressed gratitude for the 25 cents he found.

His family and friends mocked him for being grateful for the puny amounts he found but the Universe did not. He found $1.00 on his walk through town and expressed great gratitude for it. 


He was so happy with his one dollar that he decided to spend the dollar on a lottery ticket..... Guess what?  He won a million dollar....and it all started because he was grateful for two cents.

Expressing sincere gratitude for what we have guarantees we will attract more good stuff into our life to be grateful for. The feelings of gratitude acting like cosmic magnets, in ways I cannot explain, reach out into the universe and bring back to us more of what we are sincerely grateful for.....

Every time you get something for free, even if it is only finding a penny or two, it is a test.  It is a test from the universe to see if you are going to be grateful or not. And if you are and you trust the universe wants the best for you, the universe will reward you with more. It has worked for me all of my life.... 


When I am not grateful for the things I have in my life, the supply of good things coming into my life dries up. And since I have the desire to have more in my life and not less I am grateful for every little good thing that comes my way. 

When you are grateful for every little thing that the universe provides you with, the universe provides you with more things to be grateful for either by dropping them off at your doorstep or by guiding you to them by giving you inspired thoughts and intuitive impulses that lead you to the good things you want.

Good Advice about 'Not Knowing' (Powerful, Liberating)

.
I don't know and I know that I don't know. 

And I don't know whether I will ever know but..... 

I do know 'resisting' not knowing will definitely keeping me from ever knowing. 

And since I do know that, I will allow my 'not knowing' to harmlessly pass me by like clouds in the sky. I will then focus my attention on the things I do know and can do something about rather than bitching and moaning about the things I don't know and can't do a damn thing about.

The emotional freedom that comes from being honest with myself is ASTONISHING...

Don't know what to do next?? GO PLAY. Here's Why

.
When you don't know what to do next, GO PLAY.. Trying to force an answer or solution will stress you out. And if you persist, 99% of the time your desire for an immediate solution or answer will backfire on you and cause you to get into an argument with another person or result in you being upset for no good reason at all.  When you don't know what to do next, admit to yourself you don't know and go play. While playing, the answer will either come to you or you will realize your need for an immediate answer is not necessary at all.

Generally speaking, the UNIVERSE (the God of your understanding) provides answers and knowledge on a need to know basis.  If you don't know, you don't need to know... And if you do need to know, you will.  That's been my experience about knowing.

A relaxed mind solves problem easily. A stressed out mind delays problems 
being solved while a closed mind prevent problems from being solved altogether.
